Chinese Scientists Can Turn Rain Into Electricity With This One Secret Ingredient!


Scientists in China have made an amazing break through in the field of sustainable energy by discovering a way of turning raindrops into electricity




The Scientists from Yunnan Normal University and the Ocean University of China have used a relatively new product - graphene - to create the special panels.



Water contains a lot of natural salts, including ammonium, calcium, and sodium. These salts react with the electrons in the graphene and produce electricity. The other leading product in this field, solar panels, are often criticised for not working on rainy days, but with this new discovery they could soon be working rain or shine.

Graphene is an incredible material, discovered just 10 years ago it is a one-atom thick layer of carbon, and is thought to be the most electrically conductive material on the planet. Pound for pound it is stronger than steel and more malleable than paper. It is fast becoming one of the most used materials in the world of science and is being used in everything from smart phones to clothing.





At the moment the new panels are only converting  6.5 % of the energy generated into electricity, and normal solar panels create about 22% so some work does need to be done.

With the fossil fuel crisis and the reluctance of many people to look to energy ideas such as panels, this is surely a step in the right direction to solving the world's energy problems.
